Heated Grips

Hi guys

Just wondering if the KTM 300 EXC 02 Model has heated grips or not. If you look at the grips there is metal wraped around. And embeded in there

Never seen heated grips as standard spec on any enduro bike.

The grips have probably been wired to the bars. This is standard practice.

Soft.. but smart, warm, comfy and did I mention it was warm ?

Anyway, if heated grips are soft then you should also add Rekluse clutches, steering dampeners, X-XXXXXXX and grippy tyres


EDIT: Removing 4-Strokes from the soft list as requested

hey easy big fella....not so happy about you adding 4-strokes to your list, there is a big difference between smart and soft

I have put heated grips on two bikes now. I may be a ******* but I'm a warm ******* who can ride without getting cramps or arm pump, on long rides in the snow or rain. I've done both.
